Monaco starlet Thomas Lemar is happy to remain at Stade Louis II for the time being in spite of the heavy interest from abroad, according to his father.
The 21-year-old has become one of Europe’s hottest commodities after producing some scintillating displays in France and Europe, and there appear to be quite a few top clubs ready to pay top dollar for his services this summer.
However, it seems that Lemar would prefer to remain with Monaco for another year or two, possibly due to his plans to secure a place in France’s World Cup squad next year.
“Today, Thomas is with the Ligue 1 leaders. There is no set plan for him. Lemar’s father told Ouest France.
“We are of the belief that logically the plan is playing time, which is what he has at Monaco. Sometimes there are financial parameters that do not fit into that, but I think the aim is to do another year or two with Monaco.
“His ambition, his aim, is certainly to go a little further. In this situation, the player will have a say, but he is not always the only one to decide.”
Thomas Lemar has largely impressed since joining the Principality club from Caen two years ago and he has been in excellent form this season.
The attacking midfielder has been one of club’s star performers, producing 12 goals and 10 assists in 44 competitive outings.
